Declaration owner: Carpet I inherited from my uncle JUDr. Kallmünzer George and his wife. My uncle was a lawyer in Prague and ordered carpet from A. Kybal to his apartment, which was in the house at Chotkova street. In the house had a studio designer Kybal which was related to my uncle. Carpet comes from the 20th or 30th years of the 20th century. Apartment building was demolished in the 60s during the construction of the metro station Malostranská. Probably should have be created another one – smaller, which owned family of first republic businesses from Mělník. But this I know only by hearsay. (Presumably, this specimen was auctioned in Auction House Granary in 2014 to a private collection. – Ed. Author.). Around 1936 was model also used for textile printing (eg. Curtain fabrics), see lit .: Czech applied arts from 1918 to 1938, A. Adler, Odeon, 1983 s.193.
